 Magical Loch side campsite with wild camping feel to it.

Great location for accessing the inland Lochs and eagle spotting.

Amenities are rudimentary but clean.

 Stayed here for a couple of nights in October 2017. As stated in other reviews this site is just a strip of grass at the end of Loch na Keal.

When I stayed the grass was almost a swamp, there had been endless days of rain before my visit, and plenty more rain and wind during my stay, which of course is not the owners fault.

As for facilities, there are two toilets (1 x male, 1 x female) and one sink with hot and cold water for pot-washing, these are situated a few hundred yards along the single track road in what looks like a converted tool shed or workshop. This building is grubby and run-down and the toilets looked like they hadn't been cleaned for days when I visited.

The 'site' however is in a superb spot with beautiful views and plenty nature and wildlife to be seen, worth it if you don't mind the very basic and somewhat grubby facilities.

 Lovely views and wildlife - Great little site if you can handle roughing it a little.

A grassy strip above the beach at the head of the sea loch.

There are toilets and plenty of hot water for dishes a little down the road.

If you need a daily shower don't bother. There is a well stocked shop 5 miles down the road at Salen.

Only criticism would be, please put some soap in the toilet for basic hygiene.

 I have been using this site for years and left a review a few years ago.

I am still in love with this site, the location is amazing, eagles, otters and deer can all be seen as well as a wonderful view.

There is still no hook-up or chemical disposal. The reason for lack of disposal is due to the sensitive sewage system.

I think the more expensive sites will allow you to use their facilities. Water quality is fine but a bit of a hike to fetch, no problem with the barrels.

Loos are still basic but clean with plenty of hot water. I spent two weeks here used the shower in the van, I even had snow but was happy and warm.

This site is all about wildlife, views and relaxation. It now costs 5. 00 per person a night.

I shall be back again very soon.

 Stayed here for almost a week. Views are amazing. Very quiet site if I remember cost was 4 per person per night.

No hookup or chemical waste disposal. But a great site if you want a bit of time away from it all.

Also great for the wildlife around the loch na keal area with otters and eagles(golden and white tailed )on you're door step.

Toilet block fairly basic but we never really used it and it serves its purpose.

For facilities I have rated 5/10 but that's not what this site is about its more of wild camping with small facilities so I wish I could put n/a

 Well, we were totally spoiled on our first expedition to Mull. We went straight to Killiechronan as it had been recommended by a friend and we did plan to move about and experience some true wild camping; however we were so blow away by this site that we just decided to stay. We got sea eagles every day, huge salmon and sea trout jumping in the loch and river mouth, being chased by the seals, two sitings of otters and the monarch up in the bracken above us. The flora was spectacular also.

I was concerned about the scrap car comments - as we have two young daughters however you only see them if you really look for them. And if you like landys then you will enjoy looking at the series 1 & 2s etc.

The facilities are basic but more than satisfactory - you can have a good hot wash(ladies just need your dry shampoo!) Absolutely no issues with water quality - and I happily allowed my girls to wander to the loo's alone after a little chat telling them what to do if a car was passing ( hardly any at all).

You pay on a daily basis, if you need any local knowledge they will more than happily offer it to you willingly.

We will be returning for sure. For those complaining about the 4 fee I check out other camp site prices on Mull. I certainly do not want to be paying all that additional cost for the sake of a shower.

 I came across Killiechronan whilst searching for Mull campsites on google. The location is stunning with terrific views all around, if you are looking to spend your time watching the wildlife this place is perfect.

During my time there I had White Tail and Golden Eagle most days with the White Tail flying directly over my tent on route to Loch Ba. I managed to see an otter and got within fifty feet of him, there were seals chasing the Salmon which were constantly jumping from the Loch. Deer were always on the edges of the hillsides plantations.

The camping area is level but it is was hard to drive tent pegs in my pitch due to the stone under the grassy surface. No problem having a fire, I lit mine in the previous campers pitch with the only problem being finding fuel. Managed to purchase couple of bags of logs from the the petrol station and strap them to my motorbike.

Toilet is very basic and no shower (very good public one in Tobe)but plenty of hot water. The fella said he wants to keep it that way because it keeps his customers to a certain type and he had no plans for motor home electricity hook ups either.

If you want cheap wild camping in a perfect location this is the place, and I say that reluctantly because I would like to keep it a secret but then again it won't suit everyone.

 Without a doubt the most picturesque place we have ever stayed at with our caravan. We have visited the Isle Of Mull many times over the years and Loch Na Keal has always been one of our very favourite places to see wildlife. Until this year we had always booked holiday cottages, this was our first trip up there with the caravan and it was heaven.

If you want amazing views, abundant wildlife, very friendly wardens and to be in some of the most beautiful surroundings you could ever find yourself in then this site is for you.

The facilities are very basic in terms of no electric hook ups, showers or chemical disposal points but there are toilets and washrooms you can use, plus a sink for washing up and a power point in the toilet block.

It was a very friendly and relaxed site with everyone we met during our stay there being mad about wildlife, just the same as us.

There is plenty to see and do on the beautiful Isle Of Mull but also you really didn't need to venture away from the site at all to see all that Mull has to offer. We will most definitely be returning here time and again!

 What a wonderful location for a site. It is as close to wild camping as you can get with some facilities. Arrive on site pick your spot and set up. The owner will come round in the evening to collect the fee 4. 00 per person.

I think van terrier may have used the wrong water supply. The water supply which is a tap no hose is situated next to the toilets. The toilets are basic but clean with plenty of hot water. There is also a room in which there is a sink and a sturdy table. Sink provides washing up. Tenters were using the table to cook.

Make sure you enter by the sign posted route then you will find the correct tap. Yes the area is messy with dead cars but the camping area is very clean and tidy.

The site has fantastic views and the wildlife which can be seen from the camp is second to none. White tailed sea eagles fly right over the site. No play equipment for children and close to both sea and rivers. A site we will use again and again.

We do not understand why this was the first time we used this site

Reviewer: Vanterrier 29 reviews from this member

 Agree with previous review that the location is fantastic and we had the additional benefit of great weather too.

Pitches on the Maccair can be uneven in places but there are a few set into the gorse and are more level with open views direct into the bay.

The 'facilities' are along the road a bit - say 100 yards or so and are located in an old garage workshop. When we were there the scrapman was loading scrap cars from around the place to take away, but I guess they will be replaced by more, so that part is not very picturesque.

The toilets themselves were basic. We managed to fill up water from a hose on the outside of the buildings which was probably no worse that from any other garage forecourt, but it was not for the squeamish. There was nowhere to dump blue toilet waste - could have put it down the toilet but didn't know where that went so decided not to. There's no signs. The grey waste went down the toilet as the waste pipe from the basins did too.

I would probably not use the site again but only because there is fantastic wild camping half a mile further down the road, so if you plan your tanks well you would be better off there as we did for the next couple of nights.

We paid 4.00 per night each - which I felt was a bit much given what little was being provided beyond a fantastic location.
